The past few weeks have been a tad frustrating since I’ve had little time to work at my drafting table. I have had time to dream though (and browse the internet for inspiration); so, this post is a tribute to one of my favorite artists, renowned fashion illustrator René Gruau. One of the things I love the most about his work is the bold and often sparse use of color. I also love the freedom of his brush strokes and the timeless elegance of his women.
Take a look here:
And for lots more examples of Gruau’s work, look here.
My humble “knock-off” can’t hold a candle to these illustrations, but it’s gotten me back in the swing of working with markers and and ink again!
